Soy Food Intake Appears Protective for Endometrial and Ovarian Cancer

A meta-analysis of five published studies on soy food intake and risk of endometrial and ovarian cancers revealed that those women who consumed the highest amounts of soy had the lowest risk of these cancers. More than 169,000 women from China, Italy, Japan and the U.S. were included in the studies. It is postulated that the soy isoflavones bind to estrogen receptors and stimulate anticancer properties.

PositiveTip: Consumption of moderate amounts of soy foods appears to be not only safe, but may be quite protective as well.
